The Property

Occupying a wonderful semi-rural, elevated setting with far reaching views across the Golden Valley and the surrounding area, this extended cottage, is believed to date back to the 18th century. It enjoys a plethora of character and charm which nicely complements the more modern and fashionable amenities and decor within. You enter the cottage via a porch into a welcoming dining room. This room along with the sitting room are the original parts of the property and both enjoy exposed Cotswold stone open fireplaces. The extensions are at either end, firstly a single storey addition is home to the show stopper drawing room with it’s vaulted ceiling and at the other end houses a two storey extension adding a family friendly Kitchen/Breakfast Room on the ground floor. This room has at one end a dining area and at the other a range of fitted units incorporating some built in appliances. Access to the side courtyard and garden are located here too. The ground floor enjoys under flooring heating. The stairs to the first floor lie in the dining room. The light landing is rather special as french doors open up on the rear garden. The main bedroom (above the kitchen/Breakfast room) enjoys an ensuite shower room and fitted wardrobe. The family bathroom services the two further bedrooms one boasting a built it wardrobe. All of the upstairs rooms have magnificent views. In recent months the property has been re-decorated and has had a new boiler fitted.


Parking is found directly in front of the cottage on the drive. Pedestrian access can be found at either ends of the property. A path with steps up to the rear opens up to a landscaped enclosed garden with a pretty retaining Cotswold stone wall with further steps up to a level lawn area with a patio and pergola. Following the path around and down you’ll find a pretty side courtyard garden with steps leading up to another level area for play or entertainment. A complaint Septic tank.
